Summer is here, finally! That means it is time to dust off all of your outdoor equipment, and get ready to face the summer head on! Although it is a great time to be out, bike safety is always important to remember, no matter what.
Did you know that children ranging in ages from 5-14 are seen more in the hospital for bike related injuries, than any other reason? We need to change this around! By wearing a helmet, this can reduce the damage that might happen by 88%! It seems like a "no-brainer" (excuse the pun) to me!
Even though you may think you are "old" enough to not have to wear a helmet, think about this, in 2010 nearly 515,000 trips were made to a medical facility with bike related injuries.
So be smart! Wear a helmet when you are riding your bike, whether it be a pedal bike, motorcycle, ATV, anything you can think of, a helmet is always a smart choice.
